MF-40 Front inner tube 19.5x16 where to get?
I have an MF 40 from about early sixties and I meed to replace on front tube. Tire that has there is a 19.5x16 but I have almost brand new 235/80R16 that seems to be the same size and safely can be mounted on the rim that is 5.5" wide.
I need to find a place to get those tubes, but I have been unable. Got in Canadian Tire a 235/60R16 but it will stretch to much the inner tube. I did install it and ripped quickly.
Any idea where to buy one of those inner tubes if possible in Ontario?
Also interested in learning what the 19.5 means for the 19.5R16. R is for Radial; 16 for Rime size. I cannot find any explanations in the Web, am I that Old, or the 19.5R16 nomenclature?
